Taylor Swift is back on top in the annual “Celebs Gone Good” list created by DoSomething.org that recognizes celebrities on their philanthropic work in the past year.

For a third year in a row the “Blank Space” singer obtains the number one position due to her “feminist awakening” and her good deed of donating all the proceeds from the sales of her single “Welcome to New York” to NYC’s Public Schools.

In second place is “Orange Is The New Black” actress Laverne Cox who sparked a nationwide conversation about the transgender movement, also making her the first transgender on this year’s list.

Cox also debuted a documentary for MTV, “Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word” that took a look at transgender youths and the obstacles that they face every day.

Be it noted that the top 5 celebs in the seventh annual list are all women who have created social change and impacted the world in a larger scale such as Emma Watson with her #HeForShe campaign and Beyoncé with her efforts in #BeyGood and Ban Bossy.

Miley Cyrus makes the list this year with her VMA acceptance speech that raised awareness for the hardships of homeless youths and raised more than $200,000 for the organization My Friend’s Place in a single day.

Chris Pratt rounds out the top 10 with his comical interpretation of the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. The “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor also visited children’s hospital dressed as his character Star Lord.

Newcomer Lupita Nyong’o also comes in at #14, the actress inspired young women all around the world with her impacting speech on beauty standards and self-love at the Essence Magazine’s Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon.
